IRVINE, Calif.Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) officials in Sacheon, South Korea, selected the MTS-209 Common Armament Test Set from Marvin Test Solutions in Irvine, California, to support T-50TH Golden Eagle aircraft to be delivered to the Royal Thai Air Force in Bangkok.
Korea Aerospace Industries and Lockheed Martin in Bethesda, Maryland, jointly developed the T-50 family of supersonic multi-role trainer and light combat aircraft.
KAI officials selected Marvin Test Solutions’ MTS-209 to be part of the support package for a group of T-50TH aircraft purchased by the Royal Thai Air Force in 2015 and slated for delivery in the next 24 months to replace aging L-39 Albatros trainers.
